    Why has Del Potro done so poorly at AO?

    Timing. It hasn't been that much worse than RG/Wimby in terms of win percentage (68% vs 71% and 70%). He was stopped two times in the QF by an insanely good Federer in 2009 and 2012. In 2010 he was already struggling with the wrist, still reached the 4R but he was done after that. Literally just...

    Big 3 Grand Slam Titles by Difficulty

    What a surprise. Our otherwise so objective and critical favourite lady from the 19th century now all of a sudden takes random numbers on "difficulty" for granted. Absolutely shocking! Does your factfulness have any limits?

    Favorite all Big 4 Grand Slam SF

    USO 2008: Two nice matches with both featuring one player being clearly better than the other despite a decent effort from the opponent. RG 2011: One GOAT match, the other a solid one but ultimately a NID three-setter. USO 2011: Basically RG 2011, but both matches having an extra set and being...

    Why Andy Murray failed to become an ATG

    He failed to become an ATG by just becoming outright MGOAT instead.

    all have 20... soooo whos would you want?

    Guess they all have something. Rafa has a record that will stand the test of time, Rog has 5+ at three different ones and the most Wimbledons, and Nole has multiple titles at every slam. Very hard to say. At this point, it's a veeeery slight edge to Djoko's slam division for me I suppose. Most...

    Can Nadal do it?

    Nadal is the ultimate can-man Many a fan with or without a tan Would kiss the shoes on which he ran Retirement day they will rue But before that, Barcelona 2022 Watch out, he's coming for you And maybe then Federer sings the song of a swan When in 2022 another Basel title is won

    Why has Del Potro never beaten Nadal on clay

    Söderling beat Nadal on clay exactly once and got thrashed every other time. And Nadal was not playing particularly well in that match, hitting a lot of short balls. Sure, compared to 2015 it was okay, but I'm sure a well-playing Delpo would have had a chance in that match as well. Also, it's...

    Another Berrettini Open! This truly is an era of Berrettini homogenization! What's next, Basel?

    Oscar Otte weighs in on the GOAT debate

    You know what? We all had it wrong this entire time. Always discussing Fedalovic and joking about "Mury GOAT", while he has always been the true GOAT right under our noses all along. I hereby declare my loyalty to the true GOAT: Sir Andrew Barron Murray OBE.

    If Djokovic wins W, is the race to 7th year ending no.1 complete?

    Djokovic right before the US Open: "You know, I'm not super motivated, I think if you hold three grand slam titles then maybe you should be number 1 but not on the ATP Tour obviously, motivation is maybe to just win another grand slam and stay number 2 I guess." "I'd definitely rather...
